. that is not generally the way the united states operates. courtesy of the constitution drafted in 1787 and what i want to in sister relatively unamended thereafter with regard to the basic structures we live under. the republican president, president johnson, nixon, ford, reagan and george h. w. bush not for a single day had even a single house of congress from their own political party. ronald reagan did have the senate for four years but he never had a full congress that was republican. bill clinton did have a full congress that was republican but bill clinton was democrat. and you have fragmented government, george w. bush had a republican congress for four to eight years. george bush scarcely had the best domestic legislative accomplishment that could rival lyndon johnson or to be fair richard nixon. perhaps the 2012 elections will generate a unified government that will pass its preferred programs but it would be foolhardy, most observers at this time is the more or less maintenance of the status quo in which barack obama will continue to occupy the oval office as the republicans continue to patr

phenomenon. my view is that the united states constitution explains five or 10% am but it's a very important five or 10%. and metaphor that increasingly am fond of is to think of interaction among sex and drugs. we take this aspirin, you take this that any other, usually it's just fine. so long as you're taking them separately. but it turns out that under some circumstances the most innocent sort of drug that generally benefits you, like aspirin, can kill you in interaction with other drugs. and so it's really, really very important to know how drugs interact. my view is that the united states constitution under certain circumstances generates extraordinary dangerous interactions. and i think one of the interactions is to create a general fallenness in the body politics that they really have no say in the government, that we have elections and they just don't really matter if, by mattering you would mean the ability to win the implement a program. >> a short follow. real concise, if i get a short answer, your basic recommendation from you think the american people would agree, maybe it's not
